While travelling from London to Dorset this afternoon I heard part of a programme in which the audience were asking Shirley Collins about her "Love, Death and the Lady" album with Dolly, and she also performed a couple of songs with Dave Arthur and Pete Cooper. Can be heard here There's a link to the first programme about the album too!

Actually Kitty, that's a link to the first programme about Love Death and the Lady, which went out last night (the A programme).
The programme which went out this afternoon was the B programme - the audience was not confined to asking about Love Death and the Lady, but were able to ask Shirley questions about anything - and there was some concentration on the songs in her new CD "Lodestone". This afternoon's programme can be found here

Both programmes are also available as podcasts - and according to the website will be available indefinitely. :-)

It was an interesting and fun afternoon at the recording in early December.

Thanks Irene - I realised after I'd posted the link that it highlights the A programme rather than the B one. I missed some of this afternoon's programme because I stopped at Winchester services, so will have to listen to both of them on I-player!

I heard the one last night and shall have to dig out the other. My favourite listens are Anthems In Eden, No Roses and a CD called Fountain Of Snow. I love Shirley!

It's worth listening to the second programme to hear Shirley's comments on various topics put to her by members of the audience ... also a sample of the tracks on the Lodestar CD played live.

Not sure that the bitrate is for the podcasts. But get_iplayer 2.95+ might offer downloads at 320kbps.

Finding My Voice
BBC Radio Wales - June 2018
”When the legendary folk singer Shirley Collins was betrayed by her husband, her inimitable voice also began to let her down. Her career was in pieces for nearly forty years... until an old song from the Welsh border brought back the pure, yet earthy tones which had once turned thousands of rock fans into folk fans.

Phil Rickman met her at the Hay Festival and uncovered a story as haunting as a dark traditional ballad.”

The break-up that cost me my voice


"Shirley Collins grew up in a folk music-loving family in Sussex, England, during World War Two, and announced her intention to become a folk singer when she was still just a teenager. Her career would lead her to record music with her sister Dolly; to record folk songs in America with legendary song collector Alan Lomax, and to become a key figure in the 'folk revival' of the 1960s and 1970s.
But the trauma of a painful break-up cost Shirley her singing voice - "sometimes I would open my mouth and nothing would come out", she remembers - and led to a heartbreaking decision: "I walked away from music for years. I felt I had no option." Shirley did all sorts of jobs to support her children, and avoided even listening to music sometimes - it made her too sad. Then one day, the musician David Tibet, a huge fan, got in touch and begged Shirley to try to sing again. Shirley tells Emily Webb the story of a voice lost and found again."


Presenter: Emily Webb
Producer: Laura Thomas

It's about time they got Shirley on Desert Island Discs - I'm sure it would be fascinating.

Nice lady but I'm afraid her "singing" leaves me cold.

Sorry, I mistyped the above. I meant to write that not only is she a nice lady but her singing is great and she is a total legend, one who has made an incredible body of amazing work.
